“Cheap but very Cheerful”

You most certainly be cheerful with cocktails priced at 89 TBH and meals averaging just over 100 TBH. If you want fresh seafood you may have to push the boat out a little
further. The lobster here are basically giant crayfish, and I mean giant but the Thermidor was fantastic. The crab was just about the best I've ever had and so cheap. You get to choose your own from the ice counter out front. A cute touch also is they bring you a complimentary ice cream cone after the meal and the chef came to visit us a couple of times too. Don't be put off by the lime green interior or breeze blocks holding up the counter. This is a small establishment in the quieter end of the main Chaweng strip and you won't get hassled perusing the menu whilst deciding whether to enter

The place is across the street from Samui Natien, and the decor is all in a green tone.
The menu is very typical for a Thai joint = everything from pizza - burgers - pasta to typical Thai dishes. The dishes we tried were all good although not exceptional.
Drinks are good and cheap (although the night market's we found were even better and cheaper).
If you are staying in the Natien area, I recommend a visit if you are a group. There is no TV or entertainment at this place.

We ate here about 5 times in the two weeks we were in Samui and stopped of for a take away smoothy or drink also. Family run small restaurant, we only tried the Thai food so can only comment on that but it was amazing, some of the best we had. The staff are really friendly and made sure we were enjoying the food. We were given free ice cream cones each time we dined there which I thought was a nice touch! Nice large class if wine for 99baht. We stayed on the northern end of samui so had to pass this place each time to get to the main strip couldn't pass without stopping!

One of my fav local Thai food place on Chaweng that's not ostentatious & chilled.

Pricing is typical for Samui avg under 200Bht per dish. While service can be slow its worth the wait, you're on vacation right?
